We are looking for a very skinny London street boy of mixed ethnicity (black/white caucasian)- PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU MATCH THIS ETHNICITY.

Vital and gripping new 6 x 1-hour adaptation by multi-award-winning Andrew Davies of the Victor Hugo classic novel LES MISERABLES - one of the greatest works in Western literature which depicts the hero Jean' Valjean's primal struggle with society, examines the nature of law and grace and gives a voice and story to those who usually fall between the cracks.

This is a non-musical version.

Hugo said of his intentions for writing the book:
"Wherever men go in ignorance or despair, wherever women sell themselves for bread, wherever children lack a book to learn from or a warm hearth, Les Miserables knocks at the door and says: "open up, I am here for you".

We are assembling a diverse, vibrant, whip-smart group of world-class actors to play the visceral and iconic characters who populate this extraordinarily timely story.

All six episodes are to be directed by the superb Tom Shankland.

This is a Lookout Point/BBC Studios production for the BBC.

The Producer is Chris Carey and the Executive Producers are Faith Penhale, Bethan Jones and Andrew Davies.


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Overall shoot dates are 19th February to 14th July 2018.
Readthrough and rehearsals will commence from first week of January 2018

Gavroche- Mixed Ethnicity (black/Caucasian)

A very skinny London street boy of mixed ethnicity (black/white caucasian) dressed in rags which he wears with style.

Irrepressible with endless optimism despite years of neglect.

Witty, courageous and warm with a strong life force. But we need a very raw and naturalistic acting stye - a street-level authenticity that speaks up for the disenfranchised and the wretched.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a musical version, so he does not need to be able to sing!!

Males, aged 9 to 14 from United Kingdom
